Killers frontman reveals solo album details

Artist News

Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has revealed that his upcoming solo album has seen him working with producers including Stuart Price (Madonna, Kylie Minogue and, er, The Killers), Daniel Lanoid (Bob Dylan, U2) and Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen).

Speaking to the NME, he added that the album will be called ‘Flamingo’ and one song on it, ‘Hard Enough’, will feature guest vocals from Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis.

Flowers was keen to stress that his solo album, due for release in the autumn, did not mark the end of The Killers. He said: “This is something that will only make us stronger. I want the next album to be a wonderful collaboration between four guys who are ready to make the best record they possibly can”.
